Please, I beg of you, do not start this.

It ranks up there with religion, sexuality, and ice cream flavors.

Go Linux and Chip & Mint!

(Sorry, I had to.)

There have been many topics in the past about which is better, and in none of them was Linux even mentioned.

I've used a Pc since I was a kid so I'm def more familiar with it. And of course I gotta go with Windows is the best. However, we have Macs at my school and I gotta admit it looks pretty neat. I've been using it in the lab for the past week just to try it out, and I like it.

Now, as much as I love Chip & Mint. It is nothing compared to chocolate or chocolate chip cookies, or ............ God I love almost every flavor of Ice-cream. Now that I'm talking about it, I think there is some in the fridge.

Bye

I have a PC, Windows XP, and I am happy with it. I like it, but I can't remember ever using a Mac, so I can't judge.

Computers do what computers do, so Windows and Mac really handle the same general categories in more or less the same ways. It's the specifics where they differ, and those specifics cause anger, bitterness, hatred, and occasional holy wars.

Macs create text files like PCs do. There's a basic application included with Mac OS (TeachText, SimpleText, or TextEdit, depending on the version of Mac OS), and a variety of word processors are available. Appleworks is the software suite closest to Microsoft Office, but it hasn't been updated for several years. Microsoft also makes Office for Macs, and many Mac users use it.

The exact differences are impossible to catalogue without taking up way too much space or causing flame wars. Look them up elsewhere.

I dislike all computers equally, and am especially concerned with the prevalence of garbage on the internet.

On a positive note, I do like ice cream, but not all ice creams, and am especially partial to home-made raspberry ice cream.

Macs are dependable, stable computers.

PCs are non-dependable, instable, hackable computers with lots of games and I love it.

I can simply say, use Mac if you like a good office computer or use PC if you like MicroSoft propaganda, games and hacking. In case you like both of them, buy both; I have both a windows laptop and a stationary mac, I love them both. :)

Hmm... should I buy RedHat Linux, too? ;)

In case you have the money, rather.

If you like a good, stable office computer that is affordable, get a PC, make a secondary partition on your hard drive and dualboot Linux.

Go Mac if you don't like viruses and crashs and if you don't want to wait always for the PC version of Spiderwebgames.
Also: Macs are as affordable as PCs nowadays but much more user-friendly.

Yes, but if people actually followed this advice Mac's would have just as many viruses and crashes(if not more) and the increase in demand would lead to an increase in price. That you think they are more user-friendly is very subjective...

You hit the nail on the right head with that one.

The cliche seems to be that the working artist uses a Mac, while her secretary uses a PC. They are both very good and have their advantages and disadvantages.

Why would you buy Linux? Just get Debian or Mandrake or something else that's free.

quote:

Not quite. My PC hasn't had a crash for months, and I have never had an instance when I couldn't depend on it. Windows works for those who know how to make it work. Similarly, if i got on a Mac, it wouldn't work to it's fullest potential, because I don't know how to use it. And I'm sure Macs are just as hackable as PC's. No security system is invincible. It's just nobody takes the time to hack Macs or write viruses for them because they're uncommon. Just like Mozilla Firefox and Linux.

It's one of those stereotypes left over from the days of Win95/98/etc and stuff. XP Pro is actually quite stable... I should know.

I have the opposite - PC as a server (desktop), Mac Powerbook (laptop).

I prefer the Mac, however I'm usually forced to use the PC for some games I can't find for the Mac. I groan when I do becuase with newer PC games I often have to do something to the PC to make them work (ie. upgrade drivers, video cards, etc.).

Well, that's because new PC games actually have good graphics.

Anyway, I really don't know what you're talking about with instability. This PC of mine has had some trouble with it, but it's almost all been hardware troubles (woo, two massive hardware failures in two years) with one software problem (virus scanning software that refused to uninstall properly made me need to wipe my Windows drive) that wasn't because of Microsoft software, anyway.

As far as runtime, I've currently been on AIM for 3 days, 23 hours, and 33 minutes continously as of this post, and this is a pretty low online time for me. I have all the stability I could ever need from my Windows machine.

EDIT: *beats spy.there up*

Gah, it's not so hard to learn a new OS. I've worked on vax stations, a few years of Solaris, a couple of years on Linux of various breeds, several years of Windows 98 and 2000, a little bit of Mac 8 and 9 and Windows XP, and now a lot of Mac OS X. It's not true that you have to be stuck with whatever you're used to.

At least for now I like Macs not because they do anything important that Windows machines can't, but just because to me they seem prettier, both as an OS and as hardware. And since I spend an alarming fraction of my life in front of computer equipment, having nicer computers is a major quality of life issue. But it's really only since the flat panel iMacs and OS X that Macs have gotten good, as far as I'm concerned; I found the old machines and the Classic OS tolerable but nothing wonderful.

Actually, I guess the ill-fated G4 Cube was the beginning of the new deal. Anyway, as everybody now knows, suddenly a few years ago everything Apple went from geek-chic at best to true cool. I told myself I should have bought stock, but did I listen, no.
